Only because he hasn't tried.  Tommy C could spit one verse and it would decimate Willy. "A new Will Smith Movie? We're all gonna miss this Stepping up to The Cruiser, that's Risky Business

He was alright, but wouldnt put him in the same league as his British counterpart Richard Blackwood. I did own the album Big Willie Style. I recall getting both that and Chef Aid for Christmas and for

You do know that if you sample a song it doesn't have to be about the same thing right?

Fresh Prince of Bel-Air

30% of his music

Men in Black (First one)

Enemy of the State 

Bad Boys 2

They're all good to great. Not a bad haul, but there is a lot of other stuff he's done and it's all pap to pish. 

Bad Boys 2 is dire, it just never seems to end. I remember thinking it must be nearly over then they all went on a trip to Cuba! I get the feeling it started off as a decently written generic film and then Martin Lawrence refused to take his dressing gown off or leave his trailer unless they added in a load of shit for him to do.

 

Enemy of the State is quality though...but that's mainly because of Gene Hackman.

 

Edit: Think it was Astro that said he's just waiting for Will Smith to be outed as a lunatic, based on some of the weird shit he's come out with

A combination of pushing his weird kids and the fact that he cannot pick a decent film to be in have really diluted him. The Scientology shit also left a stink. Its weird because Will comes across as a genuinely nice bloke, but the rest of his family seem batshit and far removed from him (or at least the public persona of Will Smith)

It seemed that around Ali time he really could push on into great actor territory, but he's made some awful missteps. He certainly can act, but he really needs a good role and soon.

He's done the odd good thing. I never thought Fresh Prince was any good at all and I think I only watched it for Hilary.

For only £15 you can finally achieve your dream and meet her next month to personally tell her you used to wank thinking of her (photo of you with Hilary and Geoffrey together also available).

Blimey, for £25 you can meet Eddie Marsden. He's only there on the Saturday, probably because he has a dinner party that night.

I agree that on talk shows he seems like a decent bloke. But I can't remember the last time I saw him act and thought he was any good. Fresh Prince is proper overatted.It's similar to Friends in that time has not been kind to it. Maybe it would have been different if he hadn't turned down Django Unchained. And whoever said Will 2K is a banger needs to give their head a wobble.

Summertime, Bad Boys (first one, obvs), and Wild Wild West (SONG and FILM) are all fantastic.  The bit part in ID4 is fine.  The rest I can take or leave, but for the aforementioned he'll always be decent to me.

That's just patently nonsense. Friends is still as good as it ever was and there's only a few awkward bits that haven't dated well.

And all that would have happened with your latter point is that Django would have been a much worse film. 

You're really consistently almost on the right side of an argument and always for the wrong reasons, soapdish. I know opinions are subjective and all but... damn if you don't give that notion a run for its money.

He's one of the biggest stars of that era of shit blockbusters. Bags of charisma made up for his lack of acting chops but he has a few good bits as well.

As far as his serious stuff that Six Degrees of Separation was alright and I've never seen Ali but wasn't he meant to be good in that?

Will Smith made them change the ending of I Am Legend from how it was in the book so he gets a thumbs down in my book. Seven Pounds was also one of the worst films I've ever seen but then again when I was 13 Big Willie Style was my absolute jam and I'll happily admit that a couple of years ago I drove through Miami rapping along to every word.
